08:06 AM ET 11.17 | Ray Rice carried the ball five times this past weekend, thanks in part to Baltimore being forced to play catch-up, but Rice wasn't talking after the loss. By the time Rice did speak to the media Wednesday, smiling broadly and sporting his a Orioles hat featuring the new cartoon bird, he said he was thankful he had had the chance to collect this thoughts. The loss, he emphasized, bothered him more than the number of times he touched the ball. ... But it was hard to resist pleading his case a bit -- albeit respectfully. "I am never going to be the guy that talks about touches," Rice said. "But obviously, we know going into a game, five carries is not going to cut it. You look at it, and I know five carries is not going to do us any justice."

Rice should understand that when confronted by a superior Seabags team, the coach had no alternative.

Tell your kickoff team to stop fumbling and your team would get more possesions

This is a polite way of saying that Flacco isn't an elite quarterback, and the Ravens shouldn't try to win the game through the air, because it just ain't happening.

What is his beef? He got three more carries than Timmy had pass completions. The over/under for both is 8 this week.

Kind of like when a Steeler fan hopes the Ravens beat up the Bengals, guess they are getting a little worried about the Bengals since they play them in couple weeks

What's this? A Patriots fan talking smack? Come back here once you guys start winning playoff games again.

Baltimore is pretty close to DC. The 'Skins bad playcalling must be contagious.
